3,634 Dead Birds Collected in Gulf, Wildlife Service Says

3,634 Dead Birds Collected in Gulf, Wildlife Service Says

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the first time is breaking down the species of oiled birds collected – alive and dead – in the Gulf of Mexico since the April 20 BP well blowout.

As of Tuesday, 4,676 birds had been collected; 3,634 of those were dead. Of the dead birds, 1,226 were visibly oiled.

Of the dead birds, the largest numbers are laughing gulls (1,591), followed by brown pelicans (376) and northern gannets (182).
Live birds are taken to rehabilitation centers in Hammond, Louisiana; Gulfport, Mississippi; Theodore, Alabama; and Pensacola, Florida.

Once the birds are stabilized, they undergo several washings, feedings, and the collection of vital health information. They stay at the rehabilitation centers until their natural body oils are replenished and they are sufficiently recovered for release, the Fish and Wildlife Service said.

Rehabilitated birds are banded and released into suitable habitats along the coast where they are not likely to get oiled again.

    Hey there,

    I thought you and your readers might want to consider receiving free copy of Dead Rising 2. Here’s situation.
    I stumbled upon a website – (which i assumed was a total bs, because it’s well known there’s nothing “free” and I saw these kinds of websites before a lot), I decided to give it a shot and clicked through, followed on-screen instructions – and here I am 3 weeks later with my brand-new shiny piece of plastic – Dead Rising 2 unboxed!

    Now get there and try it out yourself.

    Hope I added some value to your blog and someone gets as lucky as me!
